Cruise aboard an old rigging in bay


Voiles de vieux gréements bandeau

Come and sail on a traditional boat from Étaples-sur-mer!

On board the Saint Michel, it is not necessary to know how to sail, a crew of professionals makes you discover and enjoy sailing while participating in the maneuvers.

The Saint Michel, built locally at the municipal shipbuilding yard, is a replica of a canoe from the early twentieth century. Its hull is not smooth but constructed of planks that overlap. It is thus more flexible and it allows it to be able to run aground on the beach, especially when there is no port to moor.
